When I type http://localhost:8080/ in any of my windows browser, I see all the files listed in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox which is my Firefox installation directory. I am not sure which http server is it as I have not installed any webserver myself.

I want to know which http server is running? any suggestion how to detect it?

run command

netstat -a -o

you will see a PID of proccess which bind your port. after that you can detect a name of proccess with process manager.
